Multi-fuel motor vehicle refueling complex (MAZK) No. 5 of OAO TATNEFT was recognized a winner of the international contest "Station of the Month" in April this year.
This prestigious competition has been held by the popular Russian industry branch publication "Modern Filling Station" since 2003 among the filling stations located in the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Belarus. Applications for participation in the contest are also submitted by companies of the other former Soviet republics and Eastern European countries.
MAZK No. 5 is located on the 1261-st km of "Ural" motorway M5 Samara-Ufa-Chelyabinsk and is operated by the Bavlinsky branch of OOO "Tatneft-AZS Center." The facility covers an area of 29,016 square meters; the fuel is dispensed at the filling station through 7 dual-sided two-gun filling station dispensers of Gilbarco Company (Germany), while gas is dispensed through a two-operator gas dispenser GRK FAS-230. For the convenience of the customers there is a cafe operating in the station for 25 seats with a wide range of hot meals, snacks, drinks, pastries of the Tatar national cuisine; service center for repair and maintenance of tires, including the SSC (solid steel cord) tires and a mini market with a wide range of tires, motor oils, food products, automobile chemical goods, household goods and spare parts; STO (service station); parking for cars and trucks.
The convenient location of the filling station, reasonable prices, high quality of the fuel, high level of the service and a discount system for regular customers help to increase the number of customers as well as sales of fuel and associated products.
Winning the "Station of the Month" contest entitles to participate in the "Station of the Year" contest.
The congratulation address of the "Station of the Month" contest jury and the "Modern Filling Station" magazine to MAZK No. 5 and TATNEFT Company says: "This facility is another fact in evidence that corporate standards do not necessarily mean the same type of filling stations. The desire and creative approach allow creating roadside masterpieces even within the rigorous corporate framework. We are sure that drivers appreciate this and a growing number of the original TATNEFT Company's stations confirms it."
